Do you know why we celebrate Cinco de Mayo?

The history of Cinco de Mayo was to celebrate the May 5th victory in 1862 of Mexican forces over the French at the Battle of Puebla. There really isn’t much fanfare over this holiday in Mexico, but here in America, this holiday has reached greater significance as a day to celebrate Mexican culture and heritage. This is one of the biggest holidays celebrated in bars – but who says the only way to celebrate is drinking tequila and margaritas while scarfing down nachos in a bar?

Instead how about enjoying some flavorful authentic Mexican Recipes at home as a better way to truly celebrate Mexican culture! Here are a few of my Mexican recipes from breakfast to dessert, hearty stews, light salads and tacos – something to satisfy everyone’s palate!. Enjoy!
